From the beautiful vineyards of the Barossa and Hunter Valleys to the rich plantations of Queensland, Australia is a melting pot of stunning, fresh produce. However, with the Australian population continuing to climb, there is serious pressure on producers and industries to get food to the supermarket for consumers.
Often, this is where the problem lies. In the rush to move this outstanding quality product, businesses can avoid embodying best practice and use equipment that leaves the food damaged, destroyed or in poor health.
For offshore food shipments, Australia has a strong reputation to keep up on the international scene. Any failing could put future exports at risk with the Department of Agriculture putting the export figure at 31.8 billion in the 2012-13 financial year.
With this in mind, have you heard of Eco-OzCrates?
Protecting Produce With Eco Pallets
Specially designed to Australian standard size, Eco-OzCrates are built with the Australian business owner in mind. Not only with these products protect your most valuable assets, but they provide your customers with outstanding produce each delivery. Here is a selection of three of its features:
1) Curved edges
To avoid damage to stock, collapsible crates have curved edges. In contrast to their wooden counterparts, Eco-OzCrates are designed to move with the product – thus limiting bruising and damage.
2) Removable vent covers
Depending on what type of stock you are transporting, Eco Pallets can provide removable vent covers. This means if the produce needs access to air to keep fresh, these covers can be considered.
3) Four-way forklift access
When packing and racking hundreds of pallets, it is important this process can be completed as quickly as possible to reduce delivery times for vital products. As such, Eco-OzCrates feature four-way forklift access to maximise handling efficiency.
